Do you buy precuts? I’ve always had a thing for Fat Quarters and I’ve developed a Jelly Roll obsession too … mostly buying them but I do try to use them too. We’ve been talking about our precuts in my HeartStrings group and we decided that we are going to challenge ourselves to use more of our Precuts in 2019 but since we’re planning for it to be FUN rather than a chore, we’re calling it our 2019 Precut Party.
Each month Stephanie is going to chose a precut and we’re going to share ideas for using that precut and my goal is to make at least one top from the monthly precut. Stephanie had a great idea to also work on UFO’s from the chosen precut during the month too. There are no hard and fast rules … if you don’t have precuts, you can use stash, if you want to work with another precut rather than the chosen one, that’s good too.
Feel free to join in with us this year and use some of your precut stash too!
Most of these were bought in 2018 and I’ve got lots more tucked away in various locations. You can see I’ve already paired stash fabric with some of the precuts!
Stephanie announced a few days ago that January’s precut will be Charm Squares. Since I’ve got a lot going on this month — Mom is coming for a 4 week visit on Sunday and we’ll have some of her projects to work on, I’m also going to be doing a lot of quilting trying to get some of her tops done, a gift quilt that she pieced, and a top I pieced and promised I’d quilt it with a nice warm Minkee backing for her — I’m going to do one simple baby size top using these fabrics.
What’s your favorite Charm Squares pattern?!!
